Back before Max was born I wanted to knit him a sleep sack to keep him snugly warm the first few months. Little did I know that he was going to grow out of it within a couple of weeks. Nevertheless, here it is:
I used this pattern as a basis, but changed it up a bit. Instead of adding buttons at the bottom I sewed it up to make it extra cosy.
I also added in some extra cables going up as I love the look of them, especially with this gorgeous DROPS Merino Extra Fine yarn.
I also made the rib at the top a little bit longer to make it a bit of tighter fit. And I found some lovely turquoise buttons in my stash. Although in hindsight they are a little bit to small for the size of the buttonholes.
But it wasn’t really a problem as I just used the sleep sack with crossed over straps.
As my boy was such a big boy when he was born and grew quickly (and continues to do so), I only got one picture of him in it.
